2017 Mountainsmith x NSP Patrol Tour Lumbar Pack

"Mountainsmith has enjoyed a philanthropic partnership with the National Ski Patrol for nearly a decade,” says Mountainsmith President Jay Getzel. “For the fall/winter 2016/17 ski season, we worked closely with their internal team and in-field patrollers to modify the iconic Mountainsmith Tour lumbar pack. We are thrilled to launch the Patrol Tour and provide a durable carrying solution for patrollers to easily access their emergency gear and ultimately facilitate the valuable service they provide to the ski and snowboard community across the country."

To celebrate their renewed partnership, National Ski Patrol and Mountainsmith set out to create a pack that could withstand the daily punishment that Ski Patrollers inflict on their gear. Patrol work not only requires exceptionally durable equipment, but also a system compatible with the specific tools Patrollers carry to protect our slopes. Mountainsmith is proud to provide NSP with a carry solution that caters to these needs, in addition to monetary donations and marketing collaborations.

"We are very excited about our renewed partnership with Mountainsmith," said NSP Communications Director Candace Horgan. "The new Patrol Tour is an outstanding example of our valued partnership and how it leads to the creation of products that best fit the needs of patrollers.
